Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 082002

Explorer Sport Trac 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


At 31,000 miles brakes and rotors had to be replaced, and again at 57,000 miles. Have taken it to dealer on several occasions because the brakes squealed, especially when pressure is applied. Tech said the brakes needed to seed. Problems with front brakes has been ongoing. Is this normal or are there other sport trak owners experiencing the same kind of problems with their brakes. (has lead to tires cupping, bushings needing replacement, front end alignments, ball joint replacement, etc.)
